Hong Kong – Jeremy Hunt Joins Mofo From A&O.


4 October, 2012
Morrison & Foerster has announced that Jeremy Hunt has joined the firm’s Hong Kong office as a partner in the corporate practice. Mr. Hunt represents private equity firms and other investors and advisors in mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments, and related matters. 
Mr. Hunt, who joins the firm from Allen & Overy, where he spent his entire 24-year legal career, brings a wealth of experience advising on capital investments, pre-IPO financings, and leveraged buyouts. His addition—together with the recent arrivals of corporate partner Thomas Man in Beijing, Melody He-Chen and John Moore in Hong Kong, and the promotion of Gregory Wang, also in Hong Kong, to partner earlier this year—enhances the firm’s premier corporate practice in Greater China.
“Expanding our corporate transactional capabilities in China and Southeast Asia, and particularly our work with private equity funds, is a top strategic priority of the firm,” said Keith Wetmore, Chair of Morrison & Foerster. 
“Jeremy has a very significant reputation in that space and we are delighted to welcome him.”
Added Ven Tan, Managing Partner of Morrison & Foerster’s Hong Kong office,
“Jeremy joins our leading private equity partner Thomas Chou in Hong Kong to support the increasing volume, range, and sophistication of transactions being executed by our Asia-based private equity clients. His pan-Asia buyout experience, including his specialized expertise in Hong Kong PIPE investments, leveraged buyouts and public takeovers, will broaden and deepen what is already considered one of the one of the top tier private equity prractices in the Asia Pacific region.”
